Thank you for this wonderful review! And, yes, I believe in ghosts (I’ve see. Then but sometimes it’s my overactive imagination 🙄)

The Deception - Historical Thrillers]

Wow. This book was something else, and I mean that in a good way. Such a unique story of deception and just how far someone is willing to go to keep up a charade. I have to admit, it started off a bit slow, but once the pace picked up, I was hooked. The story was chilling, compelling, and unique and it had me guessing the whole time. The only thing I wish had been different was I wish I hadn’t guessed where the story was going. It was still a thrilling and captivating read, and I’d definitely recommend - especially now that it’s spooky season!

🎭Synopsis - 𝐀 𝐬𝐥𝐞𝐢𝐠𝐡𝐭 𝐨𝐟 𝐡𝐚𝐧𝐝. 𝐀 𝐭𝐫𝐢𝐜𝐤 𝐮𝐩 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐬𝐥𝐞𝐞𝐯𝐞. 𝐀 𝐜𝐚𝐥𝐥 𝐟𝐨𝐫 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐝𝐞𝐚𝐝.

New Hampshire, 1877. Maud Price was once a celebrated child medium, a true believer in lifting the veil between the living and the dead. Now penniless, her guiding spirits gone, the so-called “Maid of Light” is desperate to regain her reputation - but doing so means putting her faith in deceiving others.

Clementine Watkins, known in spiritualist circles for her bag of tricks and utmost discretion, creates the sort of theatrics that can fill Maud’s parlor again, and with each misdirection, Maud’s fame is restored. But her guilt is a heavy burden. And the ruse has become a risk. Others are plotting to expose the fraud, and Clem can’t allow anyone - even Maud - to jeopardize the fortune the hoax has made her.

When the deception hints at a possible murder, Maud realizes how dangerous a game she’s playing. But to return to the light from which she’s strayed, she must first survive the darkness created by Clem’s smoke and mirrors.

4⭐️/5⭐️

Thank you to @amazonpublishing, Historical Thrillers], and @letstalkbookspromo for this arc in exchange for an honest review!

Lockdown is a bummer, isn’t it? But the great thing about reading is that it can transport you to somewhere completely different in the mere flick of a page. These days you can find crime fiction set in all manner of locations, both humdrum and exotic. So how does an idyllic Greek Island grab you?...

Big Publishers Hit a Rough Patch.

With consumer confidence in poor shape we are seeing an impact on Trade publishing.

Penguin Random House parent company Bertelsmann cited high inflation and supply chain challenges as the primary reasons earnings at the world’s largest trade publisher fell 20.7% in the first half of 2022. EBIT (earnings before interest and taxes) fell to €257 million, from €324 million in the same period last year. Revenue rose 6.2%, to €1.92 billion, but excluding the favorable impact of currency exchange, sales declined from 2021.

After a record first half of 2021, corporate publishing is facing a tougher going in 2022.

❤️ Oh my goodness, THANK YOU for this review. (PS I’m kind of in love with Clem , too) ❤️

Book Review: Kim Taylor Blakemore’s 𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐃𝐞𝐜𝐞𝐩𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧

It’s 1877. Maud, once a celebrated child medium, no longer hears the voices of the dead. Clementine, a trickster & fraud, creates the theatrics that fill Maud’s parlor again. With the deception, comes risk, and things take a dark, haunting turn when both women find themselves in the middle of a grisly murder…

𝐆𝐞𝐧𝐫𝐞: Historical mystery/suspense

Sounds good, right?

𝐖𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐖𝐨𝐫𝐤𝐞𝐝:

▪️I’m obsessed with Clementine! She’s bold, brash, and surprising, and she turns on their head the gender roles of the time period. If you like 𝐬𝐭𝐫𝐨𝐧𝐠 𝐟𝐞𝐦𝐚𝐥𝐞 𝐌𝐂𝐬, you’ll dig Clem. Blakemore did an A+ job crafting her character because I couldn’t wait to see what she did next…

▪️ I hadn’t known much about the Spiritualism Movement going into this book, and the story really captures that fervor. It sent me down a Google rabbit hole on 𝟏𝟗𝐭𝐡 𝐜𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐮𝐫𝐲 𝐦𝐞𝐝𝐢𝐮𝐦𝐬, the power of suggestion, & the nature of free will.

▪️ Atmosphere! Lots of 𝐠𝐨𝐭𝐡𝐢𝐜 𝐯𝐢𝐛𝐞𝐬. Dark, haunting, and ominous. Loved it!

Thank you @kimtaylorblakemorebooks for my review copy! This book was 🔥. Can’t wait to see what you do next, Kim! ❤️

Flournoy Gets Seven Figures at Mariner.

For seven figures, Angela Flournoy sold The Wounded Wilderness to Mariner’s Rakia Clark in a two-book, North American rights deal. Ellen Levine at Trident Media Group represented Flournoy (The Turner House), a National Book Award finalist and contributing writer at the New York Times Magazine. Mariner said Wounded Wilderness, a novel, follows four Black women over the course of 20 years of friendship, examining “how gender expectations, race, class and the shifting dynamics of city life” affect them. The second book in the deal, the memoir When Will I See You Again?, is about the author’s first pregnancy, which coincided with her mother being diagnosed with a terminal illness.

Angela Flournoy inks a two-book, seven-figure deal with Mariner, Angela Merkel’s memoir goes to St Martin’s, Berkley buys a debut novel by a former American Ballet Theatre ballerina, and more.

It creates buzz, informs the publisher as to how much energy and effort they should put into the book, and mostly crucially, it helps the author have a chance at publishing another book in the future. So please, if you intend to read this literary tale of hard fought humanity and ever-shifting morality, then please preorder at the link below or wherever you buy your books! I’d sure like to keep writing for y’all ✍🏻📚🧡
